joe tuman. i know you participated in a lot of these debates, coached people what would be your advice to mitt romney to give him the edge? >> reporter: it wouldn't be learn to do do zingers, people don't feel he is authentic. you can't teach people to do something that's unnatural. he has never been a mean- spirited person on the campaign, doesn't tell jokes well. trying to do those things would not be natural. his best chance tonight i think is to just be himself and try and connect with voters as a human being. he did that briefly in his convention speech. if did he that tonight i think people would give him credit for just being a real person. the president, on the other hand, just needs to continue do what he is doing with is low drama obama, low pressure. even if he hasn't won on points he would be perceived the winner because he would seem to be presidential and not off his game. >> reporter: there hasn't been a lot of talk about it, six segments on domestic policy, giving them more time. >> it's supposed to. it's supposed to be on domestic issues and hopefully it will be. i wil
